At Book Expo America this morning, Rick Riordan unveiled the cover to House of Hades, and it’s what Percabeth shippers have been dying to see!

The House of Hades cover features Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase in a fiery hellish scene, and at Riordan’s Book Expo America panel this morning he said that this book is the one Percabeth fans have been waiting for. As you can see from the cover, the scene we’re looking at features a very emotional moment as Percy and Annabeth approach the door – on their last limbs?

The official House of Hades synopsis is as follows:

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

House of Hades is the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series and will hit book store shelves on October 8.
